Most Underrated Starter Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Chespin Chespin, known in Japan as Harimaron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Did you see Chespin in the anime? I didn't. The Pokémon anime only has eyes for Greninja.

I think he is the best out of the generation 6 starters

Chespin is my favorite pokemon and to be honest he is very underrated

So cheerful and cute

2 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Could easily defeat a Charmander with a higher level. I feel so much sympathy for this little guy. He needs to be number one. Gym wise, he's actually the absolute best. He's just always overshadowed by the other starters. Please, show your sympathy, and make Bulbasuar great again. - sandycheeks

Poor Bulbasaur, he was always shadowed by charmander and squirtle. He is cute and powerful, therefore, I think he should be number one

Bulbasaur is strong, and one of my favorite starters. People just hate him because of how he looks, but looks don't really matter.

This thing is overrated out of oblivion, Charizard is overrated and squirtle gets the short end of the stick with the gen 1 starters

3 Tepig Tepig, known in Japan as Pokabu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This guy is my favorite, Snivy gets a lot of attention and I don't know anyone who picks this guy, who cares if it's another fire/fighting type, he's cute, cool, and useful

Best Fire Starter ever! It's design when fully evolved is awesome and when starting out it's cute, It has a versatile move pool with options like flamethrower, Fire blast, brick break, focus blast, rollout, stone edge, grass knot, and even scald, and it has the stats to back them up. Low speed? Flame charge will fix that. Low defense? Set up a dual screen prior. It's not the most conventional fire starter, but it is really useful once you get used to it and you can make it different every time you play through with it. That's why I think it's the best and deserves more love. - SigmaScott4

How's Chespin Underrated? Tepig is awesome!

Even though he is the third in a fire-fighting line, he is still good. Great physical sweeper!

4 Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Way overhated.

Should be #1. People don't hate Chespin.

Stupid Greninja... The one responsible for this exessive hate is Greninja.

Greninja and Chesnaught are both really cool but Delphox is my favourite starter and is way more underrated!

5 Chikorita Chikorita, known in Japan as Chicorita, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

She's that overrated that people still don't think she's overrated because they might be forgotten her

Chikorita is a TANK. He/She can take a flamethrower 3 times! Amazing!

I love this little green leaf dinosaur

EXTREMELY UNDERRATED! While she's very weak with fighting gyms and other, and final evolution is so bland that Bayleef is so much detailed and better designed than Meganium, especially Chikorita's design is better than Meganium! But she need lots of love... Some people does love the Chikorita! I'm glad that, instead all of these Charmanders Charmanders and Charmanders...

6 Totodile Totodile, known in Japan as Waninoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love Totodile! But everyone picks Cyndaquil...

Me too! I love him too he is my favorite

My favorite out of all!

Totodile is the best Jhoto pokemon period

7 Oshawott Oshawott, known in Japan as Mijumaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I wasn't that fussed on this pokemon, until I found out something cool. that shell on it's belly is used like a SAMURAI SWORD. they even have competitons to see which Oshawott has the best shell! If that isn't awesome I don't know what is!

He's really cute and really good and for what! He's the most hated and frankly most underrated water starter and better yet, the most underrated starter!

Extremely overrated

Wrong because sammourott is good

8 Torchic Torchic, known in Japan as Achamo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's not underrated or overrated

Underrated? This is no doubt one of the most overrated starters ever, I mean without mega, Blaziken is in Ubers and has one of the best abilities a medium fast Pokémon would dream, Speed Boost.

9 Popplio Popplio, known in Japan as Ashimari, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is a really adorable sea lion! I really love it's goofy pink nose and it's colors!

I agree

Popplio is cute! But every one chooses Rowlet and Litten. to be honest I chose litten

While, Yes, He used to be underrated, Now I feel like a Pokémon that deserves this spot better is Litten. Allow me to explain In one sentence. The moment Litten evolved into Incineroar, Nobody wanted Him, The world was all Popplio and Rowlet. Need I say more? Please, Don't let Litten Be the Tepig of Gen 7.

10 Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Excuse me guys, but how can Mudkip be overrated when all people talk about is Treecko and Torchic?

Waterdoggo is one of the best water starters, you walnuts. How can the least popular starter of a generation be "Overrated"? You're all just genwunners

Everyone loves mudkip. He isn't underrated

Too overrated I hate mudkip - legendary

The Contenders

11 Turtwig Turtwig, known in Japan as Naetle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's de best tank in my opinion
And if u teach it earthquake it can take down most fire types

12 Primarina
13 Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Glad he's getting Thunder Punch and Drain Punch in US/UM but it hurts that my 2 favorite fire starters (2 Incineroar 1 Charizard) get so much hate for either being popular or because people are so nitpicky. And he shoots fire from HIS BELT!

This was the best starter of the gen 7, sadly overshadowed by decidueye and primarina.

14 Froakie Froakie, known in Japan as Keromatsu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My favorite starter! I don't see why he is underrated at all!

I love froakie

15 Wynaut

I voted for this because WYNAUT

He's so coot >w<

16 Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
17 Cyndaquil Cyndaquil, known in Japan as Hinoarashi, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Like the other two Johto starters, he remains in the shadow of gen 1 ones.

Very underrated and super strong

Cyndaquil is so cuuute! >.<!

18 Piplup Piplup, known in Japan as Pochama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Piplup I just wanna hug you why won't anyone like this cute little penguin everyone choose's a fire monkey JUST because it's the best

Piplup is so underrated I feel sorry

19 Chesnaught Chesnaught, known in Japan as Brigarron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is my favourite when every one liked greninja I thought to pick chespin as my starter 'mon because I love it's design and it beats greninja with eaise

20 Snivy Snivy, known in Japan as Tsutarja, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This Pokemon is now overrated, because all the time they do saying "Like if you think Snivy is the best! " and etc, and this is not even fair, Tepig is little bit hated than Snivy and everyone thinks it's badass and cool and cute, I don't think so it's kinda weird, but hey it's my opinion.

A ivy is super underrated. Once you get your hands on a serperior and a lawnmower rotom, you can switch out leaf storms with the recoil having no effect!

It and its evolutions are cool looking.

I want people to like the 5th gen starters

21 Charmander Charmander, known in Japan as Hitokage, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's the best starter some people hate this starter - legendary

Everybody hate this pokemon and you don't put he in the top 10 of this list,whata hell

22 Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Not a starter - legendary

24 Fennekin Fennekin, known in Japan as Fokko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Fennekin where to start my love for you puts a fire in my heart if I lived in kalos I would want you to be my start... er. Anyway after that poem of love for a pokemon I love foxes fire types kitsunes and beautiful pokemon now eevee may be my favorite pokemon but fennekin would be a definet yes on my team.

25 Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It’s so cute and being a starter in Let’s Go Eevee! Makes it really cool

26 Decidueye Decidueye, known in Japan as Junaiper, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
